Tim Lewis to coach Birmingham’s AAF team

The upstart Alliance of American Football is continuing to assemble coaching staffs as it builds toward an inaugural season that will start in eight months.

Tim Lewis, a former Packers player and longtime NFL defensive coach, has been hired as the head coach of Birmingham’s team, according to AL.com.

Lewis is the first AAF head coach who hasn’t previously served as a head coach. The AAF has previously hired Brad Childress in Atlanta, Mike Singletary in Memphis, Steve Spurrier in Orlando, Rick Neuheisel in Tempe, Dennis Erickson in Salt Lake City and Mike Martz in San Diego.

Merrill never developed with the Devils, playing four injury-plagued seasons there. The Knights liked his size on defense (6-foot-3) and felt that, at 25 years old, he could still develop. Merrill was a frequent healthy scratch this season and in the playoffs, yet McPhee gave him a two-year contract extension. OK, then.

Perhaps most damning: The sportsbooks in Vegas listed their new home team with 250-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup in its inaugural season, the highest of any club. (Oh, and our Power Rankings? Here ya go.)

The unprecedented success of Vegas in Year One has caused a truly bizarre ret-conning of the expansion draft, as if the Knights were simply gifted a Western Conference championship team. There was no certainty for greatness. For every home run, there was something foul. Looking back at the formula, it was equal parts shrewd scouting, players exceeding expectations and a hearty helping of leverage.

Yes, the rules were set up so that Vegas would be better than expansion teams in the past. But the Knights certainly weren’t expected to be this good right off the bat. Here’s how the Golden Knights were made:

Durant scored 43 points, draining a long 3-pointer in the final minute to cap his magnificent performance, and the Golden State Warriors defeated James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night to move within a victory of a sweep, their second straight title and third championship in four years.

No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the NBA playoffs.

Stafford’s advice to top QB draft prospects: ‘Have fun’

Allen Park — Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been in the shoes of Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold.

As teams at the top of the draft search for their franchise quarterback, those four passers are being dissected at every turn. And even though it was before the boom of social media, Stafford went through many of the same things coming out of Georgia in 2008.

Coincidentally, the hard-throwing Allen, who has been increasingly pegged to the Browns with the first overall pick, has frequently been compared to Stafford.

A self-described fan of the game, Stafford is looking forward to seeing how the first round of the draft shakes out, but doesn’t have any preference for where any of the prospects end up.

There’s a lot that can happen on draft night, Stafford said. All of that trades, movement, all that kind of stuff is interesting to me. As far as who goes where, I don’t care. I just hope those guys have the best career they can have.

I expect us to be the best duo in the NFL, Hopkins told reporters Tuesday. That’s my goal. I’m pretty sure that’s his goal. And if we have all these goals for ourselves, that’s going to help the team get what we get to.

Watson burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2017. After backing up Tom Savage in Houston’s first game, Watson started the Texans’ next six contests and went on a torrid touchdown pace. The rookie out of Clemson threw for 1,699 yards and 19 scores in seven games until he suffered a season-ending knee injury. Extrapolated over a full 16-game slate, Watson was on pace to throw for 3,883 yards and 43 touchdowns, the latter of which would have shattered the rookie QB record (26: Peyton Manning, 1998; Russell Wilson, 2012).

Hopkins was the main beneficiary of Watson’s historic debut. In the first seven games of the 2017 season, the receiver reeled in seven touchdowns; with Savage and T.J. Yates under center for the remaining nine games, Hopkins caught just six scores.

Roger Goodell Deposed in Colin Kaepernick Collusion Case; QB Present for Hearing

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took part in a deposition Tuesday as part of Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against the league.

Per Richard Maese of the Washington Post, Kaepernick was in the room for the entirety of Goodell’s deposition that lasted all morning.

Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion last October after he went unsigned by all 32 teams as a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017. 

We knew all along that we got multiple guys that can make plays, create and be explosive offensively, George said. We’re not going to put that pressure on just one guy. Obviously, my job is to help Russ, and with that, it’s helping the team. It’s my job to bring it and to bring it at a high level.

The focus from the Thunder after the game, specifically coach Billy Donovan, was that there’s a lot to clean up for Game 2. He mentioned multiple times they have to be better in Game 2. There was a sense that George’s hot shooting carried them in possibly a fool’s gold kind of way — that the shots went in this time, and if they don’t next time, then things might go the other way. But then again, maybe he’s just now getting introduced to Playoff P himself.

Matt Nagy gets a holiday showdown in his first season, and the Lions get a potentially important home contest against a team it should be equipped to beat. Matthew Stafford vs. Mitchell Trubisky ?

This rivalry has some fresh pizazz, thanks to the arrival of Alex Smith to the Redskins and the departure of Dez Bryant from the Cowboys. Whose Thanksgiving will Josh Norman aim to ruin this year? We lose that classic matchup, but get a potential Smith- Dak Prescott battle. We were robbed of a quality season from the Redskins last year thanks to a rash of injuries, so it’s somewhat difficult to know what to expect from this meeting, but we’ll get a familiar face on an opposite sideline: Orlando Scandrick will now line up opposite the fellows donning the stars instead of counting himself as one of them. Juicier than grandma’s home-baked ham.

As any well-traveled (or well-engorged) Thanksgiving veteran knows, the feast isn’t complete without dessert. Consider this meeting the absolute best slice of pumpkin pie.

The second option is the Disabled Player Exception the Celtics can use to replace Hayward. There are narrow restrictions on the exception, most notably that the acquired player cannot make more than $8.4 million, and the contract must expire at the end of the current season whether brought in by signing or trade. Those rules mean the Disabled Player Exception’s most logical use in the context of a major trade would be as a part of a deal during this season.

This dude is brilliant. He won’t catch James Harden for MVP, even if Russell Westbrook reset the precedent for required team wins. And that’s fine. Harden deserves it. But if the 2018 Pelicans finish in similar position to the 2017 Thunder and your argument for Westbrook as a superior MVP candidate comes to down, Well, he averaged a triple-double, find a better argument.

With his two-way contract up, let’s take a moment to laud Tyrone Wallace’s improbable contributions to the Clippers’ improbable season. The very last pick in the 2016 draft — a dude who didn’t appear in an NBA game until this season — has filled gaps in makeshift Clipper lineups with heady, unselfish play.

But history has told us to hold off on the panic button. Cleveland has been here before, undergoing some existential crisis or other that seems to open a pathway for a rival to get past them in the postseason and make their way into the Finals. Yet the Cavs have won out every time, with a daunting 36-5 mark in the East playoffs the last three springs.

This season may be different. The problems of this team go much deeper than those of the recent past. But the Cavs have always managed, and they’ve now won three of their last four games. Taking a look back at how the Cavs bounced back after each of their low points in the last three years gives some hope, at least, that Cleveland is headed for an upswing.

A year ago, would Davis have leapt at that pump fake? Would he have cared quite so much about forcing a stop? It was one of those moments that stick out when a player makes another leap.

USC QB Sam Darnold would be ‘honored to play for any team,’ including Browns

Sam Darnold wouldn’t have a problem playing for the Browns.

In fact, the USC quarterback would be humbled to play for any team in the NFL.

The win by Notre Dame (10-3) is its first in a New Year’s Day bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M and snaps a nine-game skid in January postseason games.

He looked at me like I had two heads. But I felt like he had a chance, said Kelly about his prediction. He’s got the ability, if we could get him the football. And Ian got him the football and Miles made a great individual play and, lo and behold, I’ve got the MVP sitting next to me.

Boykin had only nine catches for 151 yards and a TD coming into the game, but he got his first start after starters Chase Claypool (shoulder injury) and Kevin Stephenson (suspension) were ruled out.

Yeah, it’s frustrating we’re not doing exactly what we want to do and we’re not playing up to expectations, Prescott said of his connection with Bryant Wednesday, via the Dallas Morning News. But we’re going to learn from it and we’re going to keep going.

Shattenkirk, who also grew up a Rangers fan, has five goals and 17 assists in 38 games for New York. He’s on pace for his lowest offensive production since 2013-14, when he finished with a 0.56 points-per-game average.

The Rangers’ blue line has struggled as a group, and Shattenkirk is no exception, with a 47.4 Corsi for percentage at 5-on-5. The difference is that Shattenkirk, by reputation and renown, was expected to be a difference-maker.

I expected it would be sunshine and rainbows, he said, laughing, But the start put me in check.

Shattenkirk began the season with seven points in 11 games, but he struggled defensively. He has now gone 22 games without a goal.

Does he think he’s a work in progress, as his coach indicated?

Three questions with Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski

When the Patriots beat the Jets in October, Rob Gronkowski caught six passes for 83 yards and scored twice in a 24-17 victory.

He was largely matched up against Jets safety Jamal Adams in that game, but Gronkowski knows the rookie from LSU has improved over the last two months.

He’s a good player that brings a lot of energy to the field, Gronkowski said of Adams ahead of Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Jets at Gillette Stadium. As a player, myself, I have to come ready, I have to come prepared because he’s going to be bringing it.

Gronkowski leads the Patriots with 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns despite missing two games. The Patriots tight end doesn’t anticipate much trash talk from Adams on Sunday, calling the rookie a quiet player on the field.

It’s been a frustrating season for Adams and the Jets (5-10), who will look to end the season on a high note by preventing the Patriots (12-3) from clinching homefield advantage in the AFC playoffs. Gronkowski expects Adams and the Jets to be at their best on Sunday.

It’s going to be definitely a challenging matchup, Gronkowski told reporters. (Adams is) a player that just keeps playing hard. It’s not just him, it’s the defense as a whole. They’re young guys, they play hard and they come at you.

I feel like a damn rookie, Thomas muttered under his breath as he sat down in front of his wine and gold No. 3 uniform. He didn’t play like a rookie, however, as he scored 17 points and played 19 minutes in his long-awaited Cleveland debut.

It was a special night for me, Thomas said afterward. I haven’t played in seven months, so to be able to be out there and compete against another team was special. Obviously to get the win was even bigger but just to be able to compete and be out there in a game setting, it was a great feeling for myself.

Thomas checked in to a standing ovation with 4:33 left in the first quarter — his first official action since Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals when he played for the Boston Celtics and faced the Cavs as an opponent on May 19 — and picked up an assist on his first trip down the floor, passing to his old Boston teammate, Jae Crowder.

It was a special moment, Thomas said of the reception. I haven’t played in a game, and you would think I was here for a few years and playing and battling in Finals with this team, but it was special for my family to be here, my wife and kids to see that, that’s genuine love right there and I appreciate them patiently waiting and giving me the love they did tonight.

Thomas took a spill on his second possession after crossing up Damian Lillard, but got back up with no damage other than a grimace on his face. He attempted his first shot the next time he touched the ball, rimming a 3-pointer in and out.
